    yes you can use them together. However, something you should consider
    - avast will block a malware if it's detected by signatures, webshield, mailshield,... before execution
    - comodo firewall's sandbox will sandbox a malware BEFORE avast's hardened mode can be triggered. Only if you allow the malware to run pass comodo firewall, it will be blocked by HM
    - if the malware bypassed hardened mode, it will be monitored by avast's behavior shield

    avast's webshield, signatures (before execution) -> execute the file -> comodo's sandbox -> allow to run pass the sandbox -> hardened mode -> behavior shield

    there is nothing you can do but they can work together
